Interesting NYPD Lawsuit
Seems someone was fudging the numbers. Seems more someones may have attempted to stifle an investigation of the fudging:
- Like many police officers, PO Schoolcraft joined the NYPD to help people and serve communities plagued by real crime; instead he was faced with enormous pressure to harass law abiding people in order to fudge statistics. Morally opposed to these policies, PO Schoolcraft refused to follow these unlawful orders and was met with retaliation from the highest levels of the NYPD. This ultimately culminated in an attempt to forcibly silence and discredit him; on October 31, 2009, several high ranking NYPD officials illegally entered PO Schoolcraft’s home, forcibly removed him in handcuffs, seized his personal effects, including evidence he had gathered documenting NYPD corruption, and had him admitted to Jamaica Hospital Center against his will, under the false pretense that he was “emotionally disturbed.”
He's asking for $50 million and according to various posters on TheeRant, he might get it. The feds want to interview him and other cops are coming forward. Brooklyn North may be keeping us updated as this progresses.
